Need a new ram kit for a 1600AF but can't decide between the two kits, they are going for the same price in my local shop.

Is it worth to go for the extra 200mhz ?

First check your motherboards qualified vendors list to see if ether kit is compatible. theoretically they should be about the same, Ryzen might get a slight boost with 3200Mhz but most likely you wont be able to tell the difference with the naked eye.

I have a B350 motherboard, on paper it's not compatible. But I tried it with G skill aegis 3200mhz and it was working fine with XMP enabled. I think it should be fine, I also checked my motherboard on userbenchmark and many people are using corsair and G Skill rams with 3000 or 3200mhz

I have some very spendy Corsair ram that will not perform as advertised and Corsair support is giving me the runaround.

I've had good luck with G.Skill, in fact I may end up dumping this memory if Corsair doesn't stepup pretty quickly and getting some.
